Third Thursdays at 6pm
We are a learning session for beginning to intermediate players of various traditional and non-traditional instruments to learn and develop our ability to play new and familiar Irish and Scottish traditional tunes, and learn the etiquette and various techniques needed to participate in a traditional Irish session. We are all learning together and welcome everyone, but intermediate/advanced players who have a great deal of experience with Irish sessions, or who are experts with their instruments should bring their patience and be willing to support new players...

Last Fridays at 6pm
Aloha kakou/everyone! Come join Keoki & Ho'okane Ukulele for a relaxed evening of Mele O Hawai'i (Songs of Hawaii). Learn some beautiful songs that inspired the tourism trade in the islands (hapa haole music) and perhaps pick up on a few traditional Hawaiian songs as well. Guitarists, bassists, cajon players (and of course, ukulele players) as well as those who just like to sing and have the spirit of aloha in their hearts are welcome to join us for our kanikapila/jam session.
